B.I.N.G.O. with R.I.B.®

Dear Blog Readers,

We have recently been on a B-I-N-G-O kick here at RIB, where we have played company-wide games. That got me to thinking about an acrostic for our products.

  • B – The ‘B’ in our devices generally represents a 20A relay, like model RIB2401B.
  • I – We have a few models with Analog and/or Universal Inputs (thermistor, 0-5Vdc, 0-10Vdc, 4-20mA), like the RIBTW24B-BCAI.
  • N – Usually, our AC Power Supplies will have a couple of external convenience outlets. However, they can also be bought with No outlet. To do so, an ‘N’ would be added to the model name, such as the PSH100AN.
  • G – We have current sensors too! There are solid cores and split cores. The split cores look like a G when they’re open. Some examples of split cores are the RIBXGA and RIBXG21A.
  • O – We have a few models with Analog Outputs (0-5Vdc, 0-10Vdc, 4-20mA), like the RIBTW24B-BCAO.

So if you have been looking for the right relay, power supply or current sensor for your application, just flip through our catalog and BINGO! There it is!
